Jessie Donovan
I thought this was a cool story about a mother of three who has a full time job and won two IM's last year one of which was Lake Placid. We got to hear her speak at the awards ceremony. 

There are many swimming training aids but if I had to pick just one it would be fins. Those who practice with me know that we use them almost every practice. I'll save all the reasons why they are so important for another time. Here is a link for fins under $20 and the type I think are ideal for triathletes. Sizing can be tricky so read some of the reviews for guidelines.

Have a safe and Happy New Years!
